Possibly explains why with the dark nights coming so many cars on the road only have half of their lights working.
Grrr

Possibly also because years ago all you had to do was replace the bulb from the back of the lamp which was usually pretty easily accessible, now you either have to have a couple of extra joints in your forearms and preferably eyeballs at the end of your fingers or you need to dismantle the whole front end of the car which is held together with intricate plastic clips, no two of which undo in quite the same way......

All of which makes a nonsense of the continental requirement to carry spare bulbs in your car.

A requirement insisted on by the Dutch, I believe...

I think that's one of these things that's sort of technically correct, yet thoroughly misleading as a way for companies like the AA to flog 'overseas' kits. The worst offender is the French breathalyser requirement. Yes, _technically_ you are required to carry a breathalyser in your car. And if you use one, you still need one to continue driving with, hence the not completely untrue statement on the breathalysers that you need to.

However, the fine is €0 and implementation has been permanently suspended because the whole thing was a Sarkozy project (who had mates in the breathalyser industry, allegedly) which was abandoned shortly after he got kicked out of power.

I think in most cases there is no explicit law that you have to carry spare bulbs. What is true is that it is illegal to drive with a dead bulb. This is equally true in the UK - if you vehicle does not conform to the Construction and Use regulations and is not roadworthy, it is illegal to drive. Incidentally, it is perfectly possible for a car to pass an MOT and not be roadworthy, if the fault is not examined in this MOT.

For that reason, I always carry spare bulbs - UK or abroad. But equally I have driven home with one headlight when I couldn't be bothered to change it immediately...

Off topic I know, so someone post a silly pic :)

There's something missing there.  There should be a stile to climb over if you don't want to risk opening the gate.
